    Have you encountered Beth Terry’s blog, http://myplasticfreelife.com/ In her book of the same name, Terry describes the chemicals in each type of plastic. Also, The Chicago Tribune did an investigative series on anti-flammable chemicals and the big joke played on American legislators and people. It was just a way to put chemicals into everything.
